Altenew June 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hello there!

Welcome to ALTENEW JUNE 2022 MARVELOUS MONTHLY SERIES RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY.   You are arriving from Colleen Balija's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the  bottom of this page for your convenience.

Today marks the first new Monthly Subscription series from Altenew.  Now all your favorite subscriptions are available at the same time.   Let me show you what I have created with some of this month's products.

The new  BUILD-A-GARDEN: NATURE'S MAGIC is gorgeous!  I love the delicate design of the flowers in this set, and used them for a new entry in my family journal.

I am using Artist Markers to color  my BUILD-A-GARDEN: NATURE's MAGIC flowers. The movement in the design just worked effectively in this design.

The new PAINT-A-FLOWER: FLOWERING DOGWOOD is probably one that I will go back to again and again. I love Dogwood flowers!

Did I mention, I  have been loving my Artist Markers lately!  Well,  I chose to change the usual color of the flowers for this card. Once, I colored the new PAF: FLOWERING DOGWOOD, I trimmed them to add them to the top panel of a card. The sentiment comes from the same stamp set.

I love the new CRAFT-A-FLOWER: CAPE MARGUERITE Layering Die Set.   It is so perfect for all sorts of paper crafting projects. 

I cut all the pieces from the CAF: CAPE MARGUERITE from white cardstock, and colored them with inks to bring some color to them..  I paired them with an alcohol ink background and a sentiment from the  CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT:  SILK ART.  Probably one of my favorite cards of  this year!

The new CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT:  SILK ART is one that will also be a constant in my desk.  It is perfect for memory keeping.

I used the CYLPK: SILK ART's stencil and Stamp set to create the flowers for my layout.   It was so easy to create a background  with  ink and a blending tool.

But, then there is the 3D Embossing folder from the CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT: SILK ART that is just as gorgeous.   

I embossed the top and bottom edges of my March Journal cover page with the folder, then used the coordinating stencil to add the color to the  embossed area.  Truly love the new CRAFT YOUR LIFE PROJECT KIT:  SILK ART!
